16-bit applications are not supported in the Microsoft Compatibility Administrator

Adam Rafels wrote..


Recently I was working with a client and we were talking about “shimming” an application using Microsoft’s Compatibility Administrator so it worked in Windows 7 . We ran into an odd error. When we tried to shim one of their apps we got the error “This version of the Compatibility Administrator only supports applying compatibility fixes to 32-bit applications. Please use the Compatibility Administrator (64-bit) tool to apply this fix to your 64-bit applications”.
